International Admissions


Picture of LSUS international students

We are glad that you are considering Louisiana State University Shreveport (LSUS) for your educational needs. The International Student Services office is located on the ground floor of the Business/Education Building in suite 119. Our purpose is to assist international students in their pursuit of higher education and also to provide immigration counseling when appropriate. In order to completely process your application for admission, the appropriate items must be received and evaluated before a formal admission decision can be made. All transcripts and correspondence must be accompanied by an English translation, if required.

Please note, that while in the U.S., the student on B-1/B-2 visa may not engage in any credit granting course even if the course is online. Study leading to a U.S. conferred degree or certificate is not permitted on a visitor (B) visa, even if it is for a short duration. International students are defined as "non-immigrant" visitors who come to the United States temporarily to take classes. A non-immigrant is someone who:

  • Intends to stay in the U.S. temporarily.
  • Does not have U.S. citizenship or legal permanent resident status (Green Card).
  • Applies for a visa to be allowed entry into the U.S.
  • Already has an F-1 student visa or is seeking an F-1 student visa.

"The right to a quality education is, I believe, the perfect path to bridge the gap between different cultures and to reconcile various civilizations. Without such a right, the values of liberty, justice, and equality will have no meaning. Ignorance is by far the biggest danger and threat to mankind."
